TALK TO YOURSELF AND CARRY A BIG STICK:

US missile attack kills Haqqani member in Pakistan (Associated Press/guardian.co.uk, Thursday 13 October 2011)

A US missile strike has killed a member of the militant Haqqani network in north-west Pakistan, striking at a group Washington claims is the number one threat in Afghanistan and is supported by Pakistani security forces, local intelligence officials said.

Two other militants were killed in the attack on Thursday close to the Haqqani stronghold of North Waziristan, the group's main sanctuary along the Afghan border, according to Pakistani officials in the region.

They identified the Haqqani member as Jalil and said he was a "co-ordinator" for the group. The men were walking down a street when the drone-fired missile hit.

Yet we're supposed to worry that they could take over governance of the region?
